We asked several folks about the condition of the Wildcat Ridge Trail up from Pinkham and got various answers. They all said the river crossing at the base was difficult. Some reported icy and slippery and snow while others reported less.
The amount of snow left in the ravines on Washington is impressive for Memorial day.
We had snowshoes an traction but nice to not need them.
